Gluten Free Product Reviews
There are companies popping up all the time who manufacture gluten free food products. There are also those foods that are not labelled gluten free, however by reading the ingredients on the labels you will find that they are in fact gluten free friendly.
Want to know what brand of baked beans are gluten free, which is the best flour mix or which gluten free bread tastes the least like cardboard?
Then look no further as below you will find a number of reviews of gluten free food products. Be sure to let me know if you agree or not and if you have found a great product you want to share.
There is a really awesome website in Canada, Well.ca, which has a great selection of gluten free foods and delivery is free! Whilst there is a pretty good selection of gluten free foods available at the two supermarkets in Banff there are some things I just cannot get my hands on. For these products I turn to Well.ca.
It was on Well.ca that I first discovered these Quinoa Burger Patties from GoGo – since then I noticed that they also stock them in one of the local supermarkets which is great.
The burgers are really easy to make, all you need to do More >
As with the spatchcock I received from Game Farm I wanted to make something simple with the Qual breast fillets I recieved from them. When you are cooking with such good quality meat it seems a shame to drown out it’s flavour with overpowering sauces. I therefore decided on the quail breast fillets with pasta, chilli, fresh herbs and olive oil recipe, once again from Game Farm’s website.
This dish was probably my favourite of all three that I cooked with Game Farm meat. Firstly it was easy to cook with as it was just the breast fillets but also because More >
With the spatchcock I received from Game Farm I decided to cook something reasonably simple and let the flavours of the bird come out. I therefore decided on the recipe from Game Farm’s website, spatchcock with white wine, lemon and rosemary.
The recipe was simple and quick to prepare and the flavours were delicious. Before receiving my package from Game Farm I had never considered cooking with any other bird except chicken (and turkey for Christmas). It was great to experiment with something new and I would love to cook with spatchcock again.

I have posted before about how the coeliac society’s in Australia and New Zealand note that oats should not be consumed by coeliacs without a biopsy before and after consumption (read about why here). However the Canadian Celiac Assocation state:
Clinical evidence confirms that consumption of pure, uncontaminated oats is safe in the amount of 1/2 – 3/4 cup per day for adults with celiac disease. Individuals with celiac disease who wish to add oats or oat products to their diet must ensure that the oats they are eating are free from gluten contamination.
They do note however that:

I was lucky enough to receive a package from Game Farm, the largest multi-species game bird producer in the Southern Hemisphere, specialising in the breeding and processing of game birds, specialty poultry and supply of game meats. One of the products I received to try was a duck. I have to say this was rather intimidating at first since I have never roasted a chicken let alone a duck (I have always left big roasts to the pro, my mum).
I wanted to make duck pancakes as I used to love getting these from Chinese restaurants but since going gluten free More >
One of my favourite things about Easter time is Hot Cross Buns. This is funny because I went through a stage where I would only eat fruit free Hot Cross Buns as I hated the taste of cooked raisins (if you are like this there are a few options for you below!).
Luckily in Australia there are a number of companies that make gluten free Hot Cross Buns (it seems they aren’t as easy to find in Canada – so if anyone knows where I can get them here please let me know!).
Here is a run down of some of the options More >
